I did the same from Virginia and I've heard nothing. Not too concerned though. And I'm not moving...

I was on the cusp of buying a new Colt when the carbines were announced so just using a stamp gives me an easy out to go back to plan A if this fails. A forty-nine cent rejection is easier to swallow than a twenty dollar plus one.

It's all good. I just think of my doctor telling me this morning that I completely ruptured my Achilles' tendon and realize that there are worse things than getting a carbine. Although I think getting one would make it hurt a little less

[QUOTE=KevinR;1430088]Everyone whose order got there on the 2nd will get that email. They went "sold out" at something like noon on the 1st... if not sooner.[/QUOT

Do you work for the CMP or have inside information?

Nothing is as bad as the poor guy who drove to the NS from New York and got one only to have it put back on the rack when he tried to checkout.
